Campaigning

We support numerous campaigns dedicated to improving quality of life for older people. 

Your support for these campaigns is not only invaluable, but a wonderful opportunity for you to share your own experiences with others.

  • Quality Care, otherwise known as The Big Q, asks what future care for older people should be.
  • Down But Not Out does vital work centring round identifying and treating depression in older people.
  • Hungry To Be Heard is dedicated to the important issue of improving nutrition for older people in hospital.
